Angelica, Eliza and Peggy talk about The Revolution during the song “The Schuyler Sisters.” Angelica and Eliza also talk about going away for the summer during the song “Take A Break.”

Sara disagreed with the rating and said:
Even when the sisters were talking about the revolution, they were talking about finding good husbands. Take a break also is a song that mostly talks to Hamilton who is a man (Eliza's hubsand), Eliza is asking him to take a break and come with her.

Alissa disagreed with the rating and said:
I agree with Sara. The song "the schuyler sisters" is all about finding a husband, and the song "take a break" is not Eliza and Aneglica talking to each other it is them both talking to Alexander therefore does not qualify under the second rule of the test.
